It was recently announced by the South Coast Conference (SCC) that eight beach volleyball players earned All-Conference recognition. Highlighting the award winners were sophomore Jordan Diaz and freshman Tatyana Tuilaii-Umi, who were crowned the Individual Pairs Champions. Diaz and Umi, along with freshmen Josannah Vazquez and Sierra Davis earned SCC First-Team accolades, while sophomore Jessica Kaeka, freshmen Brooklin Mize, Doris Woods and Isabella Alvarez brought in SCC Second-Team honors. Furthermore, second-year head coach Misty May-Treanor was named the All-SCC Coach of the Year.
